World Religion Day

Updated Tuesday 12th January 2016

As part of World Religion Day's aim to promote understanding of different faiths, we have compiled a great range of resources on religions and themes.

To celebrate this, here on OpenLearn we have gathered a variety of learning tools - from snappy 60 second animations answering your burning questions on religion and faith to debates on the role of women in religion. We also have a range of free courses for you to try.
